Camp high above the Skykomish in a zone that will knock your socks off! Join us for a fun weekend filled with digging, riding, BBQ, and camping.Feel free to come for the whole thing or either Saturday or Sunday. We will not be riding the upper part of the trail. This is to ensure trail is not damaged. Also, please be prepared for warm and dry conditions! See schedule below for meeting times. 

 

If you plan on attending this event you must RSVP below due to Limited spots. After RSVP'ing please make sure to check your email and this event page leading up to the event. We will cancel due to weather or low numbers. 

 

Transportation and Directions: We will meet at Beckler Peak Trail Head at 8 am on both Saturday and Sunday morning. Evergreen will haul up everyone's camping gear, packs, etc. while participants ride their bikes from Beckler Peak Trail Head, 5 miles up to basecamp.

 

Saturday – Dig, Ride, and Set up camp

 

  • 7:45 am – Meet at Beckler Peak Trail Head - https://goo.gl/maps/JAWmg5RWTcq.
  • 8:00 am – We’ll be loading up camping gear onto the quads
  • It’s a 5-mile pedal up gaining 2000 vert ft to the campsite and viewpoint: https://goo.gl/maps/9Abi13y4H3w. Google says it’s a 1 hr 15 min ride – it takes me longer.
  • I’m guessing folks will be arriving in camp around 10:30 am.
  • 12:00 pm – Lunch break 
  • 2:00 pm(ish) – We have options for the rest of the evening… hang out at camp, ride/hike to the meadow at the summit.
  • 6:00 pm - Dinner provided by Evergreen (Please email Andrew at  with dietary restrictions)

 

Sunday – Morning Work Party and Afternoon ride session

 

  • 7:00 am – Breakfast Provided by Evergreen (Please email Andrew at  with dietary restrictions)
  • 8:00 am - quad will leave the Beckler Peak trailhead for those who just want to attend Sunday.
  • 8:30 am – Start hiking with tools up to the summit for the work party.
  • Folks can work as little or as long as you want. We’ll have a crew leader up there until at least 4pm.
  • 1:00 pm – We’ll have all the camping gear back down at the trailhead, so that’ll be the earliest departure from Beckler Peak TH.
